My Plans for the Future

   When you leave school you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. It's not an easy task to make the right choice of a job. I have known for a long time that leaving school is the beginning of my independent life, the beginning of a far more serious examination of my abilities and character.
   I have asked myself a lot of times: "What do I want to be when I leave school?" A few years ago it was difficult for me to give a definite answer. As the years passed I changed my mind a lot of times about which science or field of industry to specialize in. It was difficult to make up my mind and choose one of the hundreds of jobs to which I might be better suited.
   A couple of years ago I wanted to become a doctor. I thought it was a very noble profession. I was good at biology and chemistry in the 8th and 9"1 forms. I wanted to help people who had problems with health. I knew that a doctor should be noble in work and life, kind and attentive to people, responsible and reasonable, honest and prudent. A doctor, who is selfish, dishonest, can't be good at his profession. I tried to do my best to develop good traits in myself.
   Now I have already decided what to do. I'd like to be a teacher. I know that it's very difficult to become a good teacher. You should know perfectly the subject you teach, you must be well-educated and well-informed. An ignorant teacher teaches ignorance, a fearful teacher teaches fear, a bored teacher teaches boredom. But a good teacher develops in his pupils the burning desire to knowledge. As John Steinbeck once said, a great teacher is a great artist and you know how few great artists there are in the world. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts. It's a great responsibility to bring up children. I think that's the reason why teachers are deeply respected.
   More and more people realise that every educated person should know a foreign language. That's why I'm going to become an English teacher. I always remember these famous words and I'm going to teach them to my pupils: "He, who doesn't know a foreign language, doesn't know his own language".

Мои планы на будущее

   Когда ты оканчиваешь школу, то понимаешь, что пришло время выбирать будущую профессию. Правильно выбрать профессию — нелегкая задача. Я знал давно, что окончание школы будет для меня началом моей самостоятельной жизни, началом более серьезного экзамена для моих способностей и характера.
   Я спрашивал себя много раз: «Кем я хочу стать, когда окончу школу?» Несколько лет назад мне было сложно дать определенный ответ. С годами моя точка зрения по поводу того, в какой науке или отрасли промышленности специализироваться, менялась много раз. Было трудно решиться и выбрать одну из сотни профессий, которая подходила бы мне больше всего.
   Пару лет назад я хотел стать врачом. Это очень благородная профессия. В 8-ом и 9-м классах у меня были успехи в биологии и химии. Я хотел помогать людям, у которых проблемы со здоровьем. Я знал, что врач должен быть благородным в работе и жизни, быть добрым и внимательным к людям, ответственным и разумным, честным и предусмотрительным. Эгоистичный, бесчестный человек не может быть хорошим врачом. Я изо всех сил старался развить в себе хорошие черты характера.
   Теперь я уже решил, что делать. Я бы хотел стать учителем. Я знаю, что хорошим учителем стать трудно. Необходимо знать в совершенстве предмет, который преподаешь, надо быть широко образованным и эрудированным. Невежественный учитель преподает невежество, робкий учитель преподает страх, скучающий учитель преподает скуку. А хороший учитель развивает в своих учениках жгучее стремление к знаниям. Как однажды сказал Джон Стейнбек, великий учитель — это великий артист, а вы знаете, как мало в мире великих артистов. Преподавание, может быть, даже величайшее из искусств. Воспитывать детей — огромная ответственность. Мне кажется, в этом заключается причина того, что учителей глубоко уважают.
   Все больше и больше людей понимают, что каждый образованный человек должен знать иностранный язык. Поэтому я собираюсь стать учителем английского языка. Я всегда помню эти известные слова и хочу сказать их своим ученикам: «Тот, кто не знает иностранного языка, не знает и своего собственного».

If I had a chance to go to London I'd like to see not only the places of interest but many other interesting things there. Certainly everyone knows that the most famous sights of the capital of the Great Britain are Tower Bridge over the river Themes, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Saint Paul's Cathedral, The British museum, Art Gallery. It seems I know all these sights well
London is one of the largest and most interesting cities in the world. Greater London covers an area of about 600 square miles and has the population of nearly 9 million people. In London today, there still stand numerous landmarks reminding us of the town, as it was five or six centuries ago. The old town that stood until the Great Fire of 1666 was surrounded by a wall. Inside the wall there were
There are many interesting galleries in our country. The Tretyakov Gallery is one of the famous and well-known picture galleries in our country and all over the world. The State Tretyakov Gallery is situated in a Russian-looking building in the centre of Moscow. This gallery is named after its founder Peter Tretyakov. He began to collect Russian paintings in 1856. He wanted these paintings to be s
Life of Youth in Britain    Young people from all walks of life are united according to their interests by the established youth organizations in Britain. These organizations develop because of the contribution of both full-time and part-time youth workers and a great number of volunteers.   Outdoor pursuits involve anything from pony trekking to rock-climbing or canoeing and help young people go

Hobbies    Hobby is a favourite occupation of a person in his free time. I have many friends. They are very different and they have different kinds of hobbies.   One of my girl-friends, for example, likes to knit very much. Another girl-friend of mine spends all her free time sewing things: skirts, blouses, dresses. She makes it nicely and she always looks fine.   One of my friends likes to make e
Shopping    When we want to buy something, we go to a shop. There are many kinds of shops in every town or city, but most of them have a food supermarket, a department store, men's and women's clothing stores, grocery, a bakery and a butchery.   I like to do my shopping at big department stores and supermarkets. They sell various goods under one roof and this is very convenient. A department store

A View on Entertainment in Britain   BRIAN CARTER, a student, is not happy with entertainment in Britain. "British audiences can be interminably irritating with their frequently snobby, haughty and smug attitudes"   It is perhaps ironic that it should be possible to write about what is irritating and loathsome about entertainment in Britain; entertainment is supposed I to be diverting and enjoyabl
Charles Darwin   Darwin had not planned to be a scientist. He wanted to become a doctor. But he was interested in plants and animals.   A friend who knew about Darwin's interest in nature invited him to take the trip. Charles was 22 when he left England for a five-year trip around the world.   This trip is a very important one in the history of science, for it led Darwin to write one of the worlds
The Climate of Great Britain    The common ideas people have about the weather in Britain are: "It rains all the time, it's very damp"; "There's a terrible fog in London, just like in Sherlok Holmes'...", "The sun never shines in July or August".   Britain has a variable climate. The weather changes so frequently that it is difficult to forcast. It is not unusual for people to complain that the we
